Beaumont & Marsh in England ODI squad

Kent duo Tammy Beaumont and Laura Marsh are in England’s 15-strong squad for the Royal London ODI series against New Zealand.

Spinner Alex Hartley returning and Hampshire all-rounder Katie George earning a spot after impressing in the Vitality IT20 Tri-Series.

Off-spinner Dani Hazell misses out from the squad that beat South Africa 2-1 earlier this summer but otherwise the majority of the squad is unchanged.

The world champions take on the White Ferns in three matches in a week starting at Headingley on Saturday (7 July).

Coach Mark Robinson said: “I’ve been pleased with how we’ve played this summer, in both 50-over and IT20 cricket. We’ve got a bit of competition for places, which is healthy, and as such we’ve got a group of players pushing each other to improve all the time.

“It’s good to have Alex Hartley back with the group and Katie George has had a promising start to her career at this level and we look forward to taking on New Zealand.”

England squad: Heather Knight (c, Berkshire), Tammy Beaumont (Kent), Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire), Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire), Georgia Elwiss (Sussex), Katie George (Hampshire), Jenny Gunn (Warwickshire), Alex Hartley (Lancashire), Amy Jones (wk, Warwickshire), Laura Marsh (Kent), Anya Shrubsole (Somerset), Nat Sciver (Surrey), Sarah Taylor (wk, Sussex), Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire), Danni Wyatt (Sussex)
